The Church of England is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church communities.
At St Barnabas, Cray we seek to provide effective safeguarding training for our staff and volunteers, support, advice and policies, so that children, young people and vulnerable adults are safe from abuse in the life of the Church and their well-being is enhanced. Protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of us all, whether they are in the communities in which we live or part of our Christian family.
All of those who work with children, young people or vulnerable adults in our church undertake a thorough checking process, culminating in a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which is renewed every five years.
Our Safeguarding Officer is Sue Proctor and if you have any concerns regarding a child or adult of a safeguarding nature, please contact Sue on 07710263425 or our Vicar the Rev'd Neil Coleman on 01689831597.
Alternatively you can contact our diocesan Adviser for Safeguarding, Janice Keen on 01634 560000 or 07787445032 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
